The American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand (AFSH) was founded by the Council of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand in 1986.  The purposes for creating the Foundation were to address the rising costs of continuing medical education (CME) programs and allow the Hand Society to remain committed to its mission of supporting educational programs, research initiatives, and outreach opportunities.  Review the Foundation’s mission, vision and core values

The AFSH is governed by a Board of Trustees.  The Trustees recognize the contributions and input provided by industry and since 2008, an “Industry Trustee at Large” position has existed to help further the mission of the Hand Foundation.
